Showcase For Authentic American Indian Crafts, One-Of-A-Kind Designs at Nation’s Largest Souvenir Show
Developed to help sustain authentic Native American craftsmanship and make these works even more accessible to the retail souvenir marketplace, the Native American Pavilion will be an integral part of the October 2-5, 2019, Las Vegas Souvenir & Resort Gift Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Bringing together even more one-of-a-kind designs and other authentic American Indian artisan crafts, the pavilion will also feature daily cultural demonstrations as well as a silent auction benefitting the American Indian College Fund.
“We launched the Native American Pavilion three years ago in direct response to requests from our retail advisory board and other multi-store and cultural designation retailers seeking Native American designs,” said Lisa Glosson, vice president, Clarion UX Gift & Souvenir Portfolio. “It’s been exciting to watch the pavilion grow each year as more and more retailers discover these incredibly talented artisans, learn the stories behind their unique designs and how these works can help set their stores apart.”
The 2019 pavilion will showcase jewelry, food , apparel, artwork, music, health/beauty items and other artisan works from many tribes, including Acoma, Apache, Casas Grandes, Cherokee, Creek, Hopi, Jemez, Laguna, Lakota, Mohawk, Navajo, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Santo Domingo, Sou’ West Nove Metis, Tohono O’odham, Zuni and others.
In addition, Native American artisans can release product each day of the show.
